Nairobi Rock Fest backed by Turbosound Flex Array system

A Turbosound Flex Array loudspeaker system was used for the fourth annual Nairobi Rock Fest in Kenya.

EdTheMix, Turbsound distributor and local hire supplier for the region, deployed four TFA-600H (pictured) three-way mid/highs a side over three TSW-218 dual 18" subwoofers. TQ-445s provided apron fill, while the stage monitor set-up consisted of six TMW-115 switchable passive/bi-amped coaxial wedges powered by RACKDP-50s, all supported and managed over BVNet and fronted with LMS-D26 controllers. Powered Milan M15S and M18S were picked as drum monitors.

"Flex Array has become a firm favourite for us here in Kenya as it allows our engineers and guest engineers to concentrate on getting bands to sound right, and not have to spend time setting up the front of house," said Ed Williams of EdTheMix.

"It delivers no compromises on punch and clarity – especially vocals – and everyone who attends functions when we are in the chair comments on how powerful and clear the sound is."

Martin Reid, head of marketing for Turbosound, added: "Our continued relationship with EdTheMix is proving to be very fruitful and it’s always great to see Turbosound equipment being used on such exciting festivals as the Nairobi Rock Fest. Flex Array in particular has proven itself to be very adaptable to the varied types of events that Ed and his team are so proficient at supporting. We hope to see our systems continuing to support artistic talent in Africa."
